According to its Facebook page, Ryt Host was established in January 2017. It claims to be the cheapest, most reliable, and most secure Nigerian provider of VPS and dedicated servers, but you can also get shared hosting (including WordPress hosting), reseller hosting, and email hosting, plus domain services and security solutions.
Ryt Host’s English-language website boasts about this host having hosted 20,000 domains to date.
Features and Ease of Use
Ryt Host offers four shared hosting plans (including a custom plan in the cart), three WordPress plans, three reseller hosting plans, four VPS plans, and three dedicated servers.
As shown in the store (cart) pages, the four shared hosting plans provide you with:
- Linux OS
- Free .com.ng domain
- cPanel control panel
- 2 to 5 addon domains
- 2 to 5 parked domains
- 2 GB to 10 GB web space
- 10 GB to 35 GB bandwidth
- Unlimited emails and SQL databases
- Free SSL certificate
The cPanel control panel provides access to a DNS Manager, File Manager, phpMyAdmin, and website statistics. The Softaculous installer makes it simple to install 250+ popular applications like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, so you don’t need to be an expert to set up a CMS-backed website. Alternatively, you can create a professional web presence (at extra cost) with the Weebly website builder that provides a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface.
The WordPress plans come with auto caching and a CDN, so your web pages should load faster. You also get CodeGuard backups, SiteLock security, and automatic WordPress updates.
Virtual and dedicated servers provide you with complete root access, enabling you to have total control over your server. RAID storage ensures protection against potential data disasters on your disks, and you receive a guarantee of 99.99% uptime.
Pricing and Support
Ryt Host’s shared hosting plans start cheap but become competitively priced higher up the scale. The prices go up as you add extras such as SpamExperts email security, SiteLock site security, CodeGuard backups, RapidSSL/GeoTrust/Symantec SSL certificates, and the Weebly website builder.
You can pay for Ryt Host’s shared hosting plans in Nigerian naira or U.S. dollars by bank transfer, PayPal, Paystack, and more methods. Available billing cycles are annual (with a free domain) and biennial (with a big discount).
Shared, WordPress, and reseller hosting plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee that should get you out with a full refund if anything goes wrong within the first month.
The host’s knowledge base is not much use since it includes only ten entries. On the plus side, you can contact the 24/7 customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, contact form, or live chat. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
